10. Connect a 12 volt battery to the tool.

If the green light on the tool comes on, the igniter circuit is defective and cannot deploy the
component. Go to DISPOSAL OF DAMAGED COMPONENTS.

If the red light on the tool comes on, the component is ready to be deployed.

11. Push the tool’s deployment switch. The airbags and tensioners should deploy (deployment is both

highly audible and visible: a loud noise and rapid inflation of the bag, followed by slow deflation).

NOTE:

The driver’s and front passenger’s airbags have dual inflators. Twist
each pair of unlike colored wires together, and clip an alligator clip to
each pair.

If the components deploy and the green light on the tool comes on, continue with this
procedure.

If a component does not deploy, and the green light comes ON, its igniter is defective. Go to
DISPOSAL OF DAMAGED COMPONENTS.

During deployment the airbags can become hot enough to burn you. Wait for 30 minutes after
deployment before touching the airbags.

12. Dispose of the complete airbag. No part of it can be reused. Place it in a sturdy plastic bag (A), and

seal it securely. Dispose of the deployed airbag according to your local regulations.
